Tundra Buggy Tours

For a brief time in the late fall, witness the magnificent polar bears of Churchill congregate round the mouth of the Hudson Bay, waiting for their seal hunt to begin. Here, visitors are offered unparalleled opportunities to see the bears up close in their natural environment, from specially designed vehicles called ‘Tundra Buggies.’
